Nonstop Nimona

This is my 4th grade son, currently on his 3rd…or 4th or 5th, who really knows…reading of Nimona, by Noelle Stevenson.  He recommends it.

Also, this is MY book.  He won’t give it back.

Other Pursuits at the End of the World

When I’m not stitching, planning to stitch, or being distracted from stitching by mundane “day job” tasks, I’m usually reading or listening to an audio-book of some description.  I am an avid Speculative Fiction junkie, gravitating to the Apocalyptic side of the spectrum.  Bring on the zombies, aliens, pandemics, natural disasters…if it’s ending the world, I’m immersed in it.

I think my obsession with end of all things largely stems from the knowledge that, if an extinction event of any kind actually happens, I’m probably going to be one of the first to go.  Even if I were to survive whatever first wave erases the bulk of the world’s population, I’m utterly blind without my high-maintenance system of contact lenses, and am literally going to go out in some kind of unidentifiable blur.

So back in 2014, I started writing reviews here and there for Fanboy Comics.  Now I’m doing it on a regular basis.  And I’m getting sucked in to the world of graphic novels and comic books.  Hey, when you’re a geek, it’s all just an entry-level drug isn’t it.

Oh, and go check out Fanboy Comics…they’re doing a lot of great geeky stuff.

Ideas Start Here

These may seem like random pictures to post, but I promise you, they are related to a new cross-stitch design idea that I have.  Butterflies and fireflies go together, right?

It’s also an opportunity to go back to my Flickr photo-stream and relive some past days of photography.
